    + Miley Cyrus is making huge strides to help homeless and LGBT youth with her Happy Hippie Foundation. She recently told Out that she has struggled with gender expectations. “I didn’t want to be a boy,” she said. “I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”

    + The Magic Mike XXL trailer dropped. There are a lot of abs, as to be expected.
